You really don't need the special clamps; just don't tighten down the 
worm gear clamps so hard. In most cases, the 5/16" hose will slip 
over the hose nipples and seal even with no clamp at all. If you keep 
in mind that the clamp is only there to keep the hose from backing 
off the nipple, then you'll be fine.

The problems start when you get overly aggressive with the clamps.
